Horizon 2

Target rather than clinically driven decision making

The 4 hour wait has not been mentioned in our trust during Covid and this has made the relationships between ED and clinical teams far more patient focussed rather than all being about not breaching.  As a result 4 hours has not been a factor as decisions are made rapidly.  This has been helped by better engagement by senior clinicians which may not be sustainable once elective work resumes but we should not allow a return to a target dictating care.
